April 2010

Following on from Easter we had a slight lull in our events. The bible fellowship met as usual on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays when we studied Luke's account of the walk to Emmaus and John's story of the appearance of Jesus beside the sea of Galilee. At the second of these sessions we agreed that the 1st Tuesday in May should be given over to prayers for the upcoming election.
"Craftastic" led another needlework day on April 17th, which had to be held in the church due to the stuff in the back room. All agreed that it was a good day.

Sunday 18th was the first Café church of the season and a theme of "journeys" was chosen. The subject was explored through crossword puzzle making, wordsearches, poetry, prayer, quiet and colouring.

On Wednesday 21st Kevin Jones spoke to our Ladies' meeting about "Familia", an orphanage in India.
Because the third Wednesday and fourth Thursday fall in the same week, the first supper club was the day after, on the 22nd. The meal was served in the church and consisted of: creamed mushrooms with Melba toast, home roast ham and salad, Rice pudding and jam followed by tea and coffee with mints. Our speaker was Inspector Lecckie who spoke of his work with the South Yorkshire Police and the Christian Police Association. Our younger members enjoyed the demonstrations of how to restrain and arrest someone!
